What a difference between your government's approach to education and ours. Even with a more progressive government, we still seem hell-bent on standardized testing and more time in the classroom. I'm so happy I'm not a public school teacher these days so I'm free to educate the whole kid and not just from the neck up, with a strong emphasis to one side of the brain.

That is a wonderful quote Tom! Our education is founded on principles that are sound but there's that push-pull between this and the need for attainment data that "proves" our teachers are successfully educating our children.

However it's still possible to "do your thing" within mainstream education system providing you can demonstrate that everyone's on board and it's making a positive difference.
